This is a print-and-go and artsy resource that will be loved by students who enjoy color-by-number, color-by-code, or sketch notes. The Magic Lesson 4-in-1 Doodle Notes & Practice cover the following standards:


Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = lwh and V = Bh to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Karen S. - “Just a good fun activity during the holidays for practicing skills! Great product!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️ Christine M. - “I put this out as an extra credit assignment for my 8th graders at the end of the square and cube roots unit.  The students who chose to do it seemed to enjoy the "doodle" part because it was different than a typical color by number task.  Thank you!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Carly S. - “My students really loved this and it worked really well in my classroom!”
